PBF Overload

I have a very intense and passionate relationship with peanut butter. Most days our relationship is healthy and balanced. On some days, however, I get a little needy.

Like today, for instance.

One of Many PBFs

This morning I could not get my finger out of the peanut butter jar!

My victim of choice was Krema crunchy peanut butter which I received from the company to sample.

Krema Natural Crunchy Peanut Butter

I am a chunky-pb fanatic, and I couldn’t get over just how crunchy this peanut butter was!

Check Out the Chunks

There were tons of peanutty chunks in every peanut butter finger I enjoyed, and believe me, I had a bunch.

Since peanut butter fingers dominated my morning and I’m pretty sure I ate 300+ calories worth of the good stuff, I kept my breakfast on the lighter side.

I toasted a sweet wheat Alternative Bagel before topping it with two tablespoons of chocolate PB2.

Chocolate PB is Fine By Me

Thursday Breakfast

Like every morning, I also enjoyed a chocolatey calcium supplement (I switch off between Viactiv and Adora calcium disks).

Adora Calcium Disk

This was one PB-tastic way to start the day!


I think my body was craving the calories from peanut butter after a 5-mile run with Sadie.

During our run we were sprayed by three different sprinklers! Floridians apparently enjoy watering their sidewalks as well… πŸ˜‰

  10. I bought those alternative bagels because I saw them on your blog! LOVE them…YUM


  11. Chunky PB >> Creamy PB. Always. Errday.

  12. I can’t do chunky pb. I’m not that big a fan of peanut butter (!) to want a crunch. I wouldn’t mind chocolate pb with chocolate chunks, though.

  13. I love my Viactiv calcium chews! I usually have mine in the afternoon when I need a little chocolatey goodness to keep me going!

  14. I am partial to creamy peanut butter, but that one actually looks delicious!

  15. I’m a big pb fan as well. I’m thinking about going to Pb & Co. , the peanut butter restaurant here in NYC. Yummm. The elvis sandwhich please!

  16. Haha my sister eats PB the same way.

  17. I think I’m going to need some PB in my lunch now…

  18. Great now you made me want some! I’m eating a spoonful now. Not sure which kind, its organic and has no preservatives though.

  19. Peanut butter fingers are totally acceptable, at every single meal πŸ˜‰ You are too gorgeous!!

  20. YUM!!! That pb looks so so so good!

  21. That PB looks amazing! I love crunchy peanutbutter, too ! mm πŸ™‚ I actually think I’ll have some for my lunch (I keep a jar in my drawer at work haha)

  22. I’m the same way with crunchy almond butter. SO good!

  23. hahahaha this post literally made me laugh at my computer screen! just about an hour ago i had my spoon stuck in the EXACT same peanut butter…it’s seriously all of the peanut chunks that makes it IMPOSSIBLE for me to take my spoon out of the jar. i’m glad we both enjoyed our fair share of it this morning! πŸ™‚

  24. Darn it, why do PB calories have to add up so fast. I’m a crunchy girl too : )

  25. I am quite familiar with the Siren song of PB… Although I don’t discriminate too much, crunchy PB is truly a food after my own heart. The crunchier the better!

  26. hahaha so cute!!! i love your pb fingers πŸ™‚ that peanut butter lookks so delicious!


  27. Honestly, Id say that was still restraint on your part as I have actually consumed an entire jar in a sitting… ; /. i should be called “peanut butter fistfulls” haha
    PS crunchy ALL the way. sometimes i even take som crushed peanuts (honey roasted is awesome) and put them in smooth.

  28. Krema PB is THE BEST! I have a hard time keeping my finger out of there too. I like Adora better than Viactiv – it’s more like real chocolate – but at my grocery they are way more expensive 😦

  29. Hi Julie!
    You mentioned your hip injury the other day. I currently have a knee injury (from running, i think? overuse maybe?).. how did you stay fit while you were injured? any tips would be appreciated!

    • i did a LOT of low-impact cardio (elliptical, biking, swimming) & tried to keep up w/ strength training as well. it was hard not being able to do intense exercise for a while, but doing SOMETHING was better than nothing!

  30. I’m a chunky PB fan as well! So yummy
